Annual Honour Our Heroes Day (Aug 20th 2017)

Thursday August 31, 2017

Former and current patients of Beaumont Hospital came together this Thursday 17th August for the annual ‘Honour your Heroes’ reception, now in its sixth year, at which patients pass on thanks and appreciation to members of hospital staff whom they believe went the extra mile in helping them regain their health and wellbeing.  ‘Honour Your Heroes’ is an in-hospital staff recognition and fundraising programme which allows patients to pass on a message of appreciation to a hospital staff member, or team, in thanks for the care, they, or a loved one, has received while in Beaumont Hospital. These messages are displayed around the hospital for staff, patients and the public to read.   Some of those receiving an ‘Honour Your Hero’ award include staff from the Home Dialysis Unit, St Damien’s Ward and Physiotherapy.

The reception highlighted a small number of the many healthcare successes brought about by the 3,000 plus staff working at Beaumont Hospital. Each patient wpoke briefly about the circumstances that brought them into the care of Beaumont Hospital and nominated an individual or team of their choice to receive an ‘Honour Your Heroes’ award.

It was a great celebration for staff, patients and their families
